Is Copper Hair Color Hard to Maintain?
Yes and no. Red hair color can fade quickly. But in a way that makes it easier to maintain! Patricia Slattery, Assistant Vice President of Hair Color Education, Training & Testing at L'Oreal, recommends that you wash hair less often to maintain the color. Another option is to alternate between shampoo one day and co-wash the next. Cool water will help to keep your hair looking shiny and help maintain that vibrant color. Slattery also recommends using heat tools in moderation to protect your copper hair color.
Depending on how fast your hair grows, you will need to touch up roots every four to six weeks.
Does Copper Cover Gray Hair?
Yes! For 100% gray coverage, we recommend Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing Color Creme 643 - Light Natural Copper which provides richer, radiant, and long-lasting copper hair color. Another option is a permanent copper hair dye shade such as Garnier Olia Ammonia Free Hair Color 7.45 - Dark Fire Ruby.
For best results, when applying copper hair dye, start where you see the grays, recommends Garnier expert and celebrity hairstylist Millie Morales. The longer you leave the hair color on your roots, the better gray coverage you will get.
Is Copper Hair Color more Brown or Red?
The spectrum of copper hair color shades ranges from copper brown to scarlett ronze to fiery chili and ruby red. Each of these copper hues will flatter different skin tones.
Can you Put Copper over Brown Hair?
Of course! Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing Color Creme 643 - Light Natural Copper is a great match for all shades of brown hair. For darker brunettes, we recommend deeper copper hair color shades such as Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color - Scarlett Ronze or Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color RC1 - Terracotta Chili.
